Stephen Ross Dooley

Our Stephen Ross story begins with my Stephen Ross Dooley wine story in Minnesota, where in my teenage years curiosity in wine led me to make rhubarb and apple wines in our family’s basement.
Things progressed on a nice upward trajectory from that point. Curiosity evolved into a passion for winemaking, which led to a degree in Enology from The University of California, Davis, then 10 years of winemaking (all vinifera from here on out, thankfully) in the Napa Valley, two southern hemisphere harvests, and seven years in the Edna Valley before I launched my brand, Stephen Ross. My wife, Paula, joined the team soon after, and we hired our first employee in 2005. We launched our second brand, Flying Cloud, in 2003.
